WHL to Hold Annual Bantam Draft Lottery Wednesday

March 24, 2020 - Western Hockey League (WHL) - Regina Pats News Release

Regina, Saskatchewan - The Regina Pats Hockey Club has a 57.2 per cent of picking first overall in the 2020 WHL Bantam Draft.

The Western Hockey League will host the annual WHL Bantam Draft Lottery on Wednesday, March 25 at 11 a.m.

The Regina Pats hold the Swift Current Broncos first round pick, which has the best chance of winning the lottery. Any of the six non-playoff teams from 2019-20 can move up a maximum of two spots as a result of the lottery. If a Swift Current, Prince George, Regina or Red Deer ball is drawn in Wednesday's lottery, the Pats will hold the number one pick.

The furthest the Pats could fall in the draft is to number two, should a Moose Jaw of Tri-City ball come out in the lottery.

In an effort to minimize gatherings of staff, the WHL Bantam Draft Lottery will be a closed event and will not be streamed live. Video of the proceedings will be available at following the conclusion of the event.

The Pats have extended the early bird deadline for Season Ticket Renewal until April 30th. Season Ticket holders can renew their tickets online in their My Pats Account or via phone at 306-552-7287. Calls will be taken during regular business hours, Monday to Friday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. If no one is immediately available to take your call, voicemails will be returned as soon as possible.
